How does this thing work? Querrey won a 250 event and didn't win a match in D.C., Nalby won a 500 event. How is it that they get the same amt of pts?
Yes, this is screwy. They give out the same number of points for the 250s as the 500s:
2. Olympus US Open Series Bonus Points:
The following is the system by which the top three finishers (men’s and women’s) will be determined.
a. Players will earn Bonus Points as follows (for the singles competitions only): At each ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Tour Premier 5 event in the Olympus US Open Series, the winner will earn 100 Points, the finalist will earn 70 Points, the semifinalists will earn 45 Points, the quarterfinalists will earn 25 Points and the round-of-16 will earn 15 Points; at each ATP 500/250 and WTA Tour Premier event, the winner will earn 70 Points, the finalist will earn 45 Points, the semifinalists will earn 25 Points and the quarterfinalists will earn 15 Points. The following chart (on page 2) illustrates the 2010 Olympus US Open Series Bonus Challenge points distribution.
b. At ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Tour Premier 5 events, Bonus Points will be awarded through the round-of-16 (16 players). At ATP 500/250 and WTA Tour Premier events, Bonus Points will be awarded through the quarterfinals (8 players). Players will not receive Bonus Points simply by entering Olympus US Open Series events.
c. A player will only earn Bonus Points in the final round of the tournament(s) to which he/she advances (provided he/she advances to a round in which Bonus Points are awarded).
Note: Updated standings coming into today. Nalby takes sole possession of first place. This will be updated later today I assume to show 95 pts for David:
